Transport Minister launches online app for vehicle registration
The State Transport Department on Sunday launched an online application - "online dealer point registration", to put an end to the long queues for vehicle registration at the district transport office (DTO).
Under the registration system, a dealer will be given a username and a password to access the website of the transport department.
The dealer has to complete all the formalities required to register a vehicle, like filling up the relevant form, insuring the vehicle and getting the registration fee from the buyer and deposit the same with the DTO.
The transport office then will allot the registration number to the vehicle and the buyer can collect the registration certificate from the dealership without visiting the DTO.
Commenting at the event, Patowary said, “This new system will end the harassment or inconvenience faced by the people while visiting the DTO office for registration of their vehicles.”
Transport Commissioner and Secretary Ashutosh Agnihotri described the new system as a "transformative reform" which will minimise human interface and expedite the process of registration of vehicles by reducing physical movement of files.
Patowary said the state government would introduce a similar system to issue driving licences soon.
"The applicant will have to visit the DTO office only once to get his photograph clicked and the licence will be delivered to him by post as it is done in case of passports," the minister said.
"We are also going to launch an app through which the people will be able to lodge complaints or grievances against the transport department," he said.
